LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
I always knew you were the best
The coolest girl I know
So prettier than all the rest, the star of my show
So many times I wished you'd be the one for me
But never knew you'd get like this, girl
What'd you do to me?

[Pre-Chorus]
You're who I'm thinking of
And girl, you ain't my runner-up
And no matter what, you're always number one

[Chorus]
My prize possession, one and only
Adore you, girl, I want you
The one I can't live without
That's you, that's you
You're my special little lady
The one that makes me crazy
Of all the girls I've ever known, it's you, it's you
My favorite, my favorite
My favorite, my favorite girl
My favorite girl

[Verse 2]
You're always to going out your way to impress these Mr. Wrongs
But you can be yourself with me
I'll take you as you are
I know they said believe in love
It's a dream that can’t be real
So girl, let's write a fairytale and show 'em how we feel

[Pre-Chorus]
You're who I'm thinking of
And girl, you ain't my runner-up
And no matter what, you're always number one

[Chorus]
My prize possession, one and only
Adore you, girl, I want you
The one I can't live without
That's you, that's you
You're my special little lady
The one that makes me crazy
Of all the girls I've ever known, it's you, it's you
I want you
It's you, it's you
My favorite, my favorite
My favorite, my favorite girl
My favorite, girl

[Bridge]
You take my breath away with everything you say
I just want to be with you, my baby, my baby
Oh-oh, promise I'll play no games
Treat you no other way than you deserve
'Cause you're the girl of my dreams

[Breakdown]
My prize possession, one and only
Adore you, girl, I want you
The one I can't live without
That's you, that's you
You're my special little lady
The one that makes me crazy
Of all the girls I've ever known, it's you, it's you

[Chorus]
My prize possession, one and only
Adore you, girl, I want you (I want you, oh)
The one I can't live without
That's you, that's you
You're my special little lady (my special little lady)
The one that makes me crazy (the one that makes me crazy)
Of all the girls I've ever known, it's you, it's you
(You're my favorite girl)
My favorite, my favorite
(Favorite girl) My favorite, my favorite girl
(Favorite girl) My favorite, girl
(Favorite girl)
My favorite, my favorite
(Favorite girl) My favorite, my favorite girl
(Favorite girl) My favorite girl
Favorite girl
